Star Wars Day is typically celebrated May 4th because of the play on words “May the Fourth Be With You.” Space / Solar System / May 4th Digital Magic Reveal Pixel Art is perfect for May! Students solve multiplication problems to AUTO-GENERATE one of 5 themed pixel art images in Google™ Sheets (or Microsoft Excel™) plus a “secret message.” This self-checking, EDITABLE, digital activity works with ANY device with Google™ Sheets (iPads, Chromebooks, and more) and includes 4 differentiated versions.
Easily integrate Google Classroom or Google Drive™ online storage service into your May 4th, May, Space, Solar System or all year math plans with this low prep, paperless, multiplication review game!
As students solve the problems in Column A, by typing their answers in Column B, a mystery pixel art image is revealed, piece by piece. Students will know they have typed the correct answer if they see pixels appearing! If nothing happens, then students know to self-correct their answer. Students do NOT need to be familiar with Google Sheets to do this activity.

Since my products all utilize free web and app resources, there may be rare times that the technology does not work as planned, which may be out of my control. Please be sure to message me in the Q&A section so I can assist you before leaving feedback. I use all of the apps that I base my packets on frequently and will update products as the apps themselves update.
